Global Stewardship

Inspiring people to explore and care about the planet

One of our governing principles is to positively impact the areas we explore and in which we work. To this end, we created the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund to support projects at the global, regional, and local level. We aim to protect the last wild places in the ocean, support innovative local projects, and facilitate conservation, research, education, and community development projects in the places we explore.

Together with our guests, we have granted more than $12 million to projects in the regions we visit. 100% of guest contributions go directly to on-the-ground projects since Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic covers the LEX-NG Fund’s operating costs. We believe in dreaming big and thinking outside the box. These are some of our key initiatives, arranged by geographic locations.
